 Q #  Question 
Good evening and thank you for the use of your site. I have recently come along a quote about how the Physicians used paga as an antiseptic and used to cleanse wounds and tools used. But i can not re find it, i was wondering if you could help me. Thank you so much for your time

What do the Torvaldlanders ride?

Greetings Master, I am trying to find a quote regarding the rental of a slave in consideration of ownership. I am most interested in knowing if a Master would be expected to use a rented slave sexually prior to purchase. I hope that is a valid topic to produce whatever mention there might be regarding the liberties a Master is allowed to take with a slave he has agreed to rent from a cities kennels. Thank you in advance for your website's information. You are an amazing resource for the Gorean community.

I play a thrall / kajirus in a Gorean rp. I was wondering if there could be more quotes from the books about if they are used in serves at all (heard that they could be if no female slaves were around to serve though that would be very sketchy at best). I know they are often used in Mines, Quarries, and Fields, but I was just curious about in the homes, not as silk slaves, if there were any such references.

I would like to know if Free Women of Gor hunted for SPORT. If so, under what circumstances, who? Caste? Thank you.

I will apologize now if this is one of "those" questions, but, I've been in argument after argument in regards to Masters/Jarls referring to their slaves/bonds as "mine" when I recall discussions between Talbot and Samos using this term. However I have been unable to locate these discussions to prove the term had been used if you could help or prove her right i would appreciate it very much. Thank you Bella

Tal, Fogaban! I am involved in the leadership of an HTML chat room based upon Mr. Norman's Gorean novels. A question came up that I had no answer for as some of my novels have been lent out over time and never returned. My question: Where do the novels discuss public kitchens? I'm sure I read about them, but I cannot recall, nor can I find the supporting quotes. Thank you so very much for your time and assistance! Aliyyah

I'd like to know the very first mention of panther girls in the series. I thought I recalled a brief mention in either Outlaw or Tarnsman, but I could be mistaken. I think there was a transition in Norman's treatment of them from runaway slaves to free women fleeing companions. Thanks!

There are many references to free women not being allowed to enter taverns; yet I can recall at least a couple of references where free women were working in a tavern or entered a tavern - I have the reference from Kajira of Gor that says 'in some they are' (p122), but I'm fairly sure there are others. Appreciate any assistance.

I am looking for quotes where a person was challenged to a duel and offered a champion to fight for him

there is formal greeting. mybe only between the planes people … however, it states that the bosk are well fed and the knives are sharp "it' good to keep them so." I need the whole greetng plesee

Tal Master, over the years I found Masters site extremely helpful, but recently I found myself within a roleplay and used the word soap, I am pretty sure I read somewhere in the books of soap being used, but I could not find the quote by myself, perhaps Master can help me?

"I love you, Tarl Cabot" Who said it?

Hello there! As far as I know, there are some references about the Gorean Alphabet. Please, I'd like to know if there is something about the Gorean numbers as well. Thanks a lot in advance and be well.

Im looking for a quote shoing smuggling from earth to gor?

Heya there, big admirer of the absurd amount of work you do here. Now, back onto the topic, have you ever seen the word Polemarkos used in the books? I want to know if it is mentioned anywhere in the saga and if possible, the description or the context it is in. Thank you very much!

I am in a great debate about how the physician caste was more advanced than the others. That their knowledge of medicine and such was more advanced than Earth. Can you please show me the quote if any? Also, were there any quotes on fast healing of injuries?

Hello Fogaban, In one of the books, there is a quote which speaks of FW who have beautiful slave girls and display them as a sort of tool for the purpose of getting attention from men. I remember I have bit puzzled by this quote. I knew about the one when Talena tells Tarl that she forces her slave girls to entice men, couch with them, to get informations they report to their mistress... But this other quote speaks of FW who use the beauty of her slaves, for getting approached by men... Entirely different. I read the 34 books and I'm unable to remember which one has this quote. I think it's in one of those with the character of Bina, the former kur's pet, and Grendel, the kur's hybrid and her protector.... I searched on google but didn't find it.... So, if you ever remember this quote, that would be great if you could post it! Thank you very much! Sophia

loking for a quote about witch person raises the male an female kids in gor for i thought i rember seinng one where it says a father raises the male kids an the mother the female kids

I am looking for a quote describing the custody arrangements for children. Example: Do mother's raise their daughters? Do father's raise the sons? Is there a certain age where sons are raised by mothers?

I am requesting a quote search for something that speaks specifically as to what a high slave is. I found two. One states it is a former High Caste FW who becomes enslaved and also in the camps, the highest ranking slave. I find nothing that supports the belief that if you belong to a High Caste Owner, you are a high slave.

Hi!!... Are there any quotes about slaves taking food / candy from a Master's hand other then her own Master. thanks

Tal, and thanks for this great resource. I have two questions regarding the calendar. First, you say "[...] the Spring Equinox as the beginning of the New Year, the [...] calendar will begin with the corresponding Earth day of either March 19th, 20th or 21st.". Given that Gor is orbiting the sun exactly opposite to earth, wouldn't Gor's (Northern, with regards to the solar plane) Spring Equinox happen around the time of Earth's (Northern) Autumnal Equinox?

Tal, I was just looking over some of the maps people have created over the years and noticed that the position of the Sardar mountain range varies significantly. I myself had always pictured it to be high up "in the northeast", but some, apparently newer, maps depict it "south" of the Vosk. I'm curious what I have overlooked that suggests the latter.

Thank you for offering this! In one of the first 25 books, there's a reference to women who are born and kept in captivity, raised as slaves, but who've never seen men. When they are put to use for the first time, they often go mad or die. I have searched and searched, but cannot recall what book it was from, and sincerely apologize that I don't have better search terms for you. I appreciate your help very much!

Tal Fogaban, I noticed that there was something missing from your Armor page that I took notice of in Assassin of Gor some years ago. While indeed there is no hardened armor besides shields and helmets in the novels, there is something unique in the 5th novel that is worn by Murmillius (Marlenus) that supports the real-world armored sleeve of the Roman murmillo gladiator: Supporting quotes as followed: Murmillius, at least until he himself should lie red in the white sand, held the adherents of the games in Ar, and perhaps the city itself, in the gauntleted palm of his right hand, his sword hand. - Chapter 15; Portus Comes to the House of Cernus I spun and saw, standing beside me, on my right, sword drawn, in the heavy helmet of the arena fighter, with the small round shield, the sheathed right arm and shoulder, Murmillius. - Chapter 21

Age is considered a disease by the physicians caste that has been"cured" by the "stabilization serum" (I recall reference to it in books 1, 5, & 7: I'm currently on book 8). It is also, in "Tarnsmen", indicated that Tarl's father is perhaps several hundred years old, but appears to be in his 40's. Is there any reference as to the life span of men that the serum provides? A similar serum used by Priest Kings almost makes them immortal (i.e. million + year life span for them), but slave wars before Tarl became Gorean lasted a generation. Is there any indication of what a Gorean human life span is?

I seem to remember that there was at least one occasion of a Free woman being sentenced to serve as a Bath girl for some wrongdoing. However I can't seem to put my finger on the passage, nor can I recall where I may have read this. Can you help me find reference to such punishment please? Thank you in advance for your time, and efforts.

Fogabane, Good afternoon! I was hoping you could tell me if there was anything in the books that gives reference to southern men being offended at being called Jarl? or if there is any reference to there being a difference between Jarl and Master; When spoken by slaves? ... I would greatly appreciate your assistance with this, thank you for your time!

Greetings Fogban once again. I wish to know who chooses the officers in a cities army, for example who would choose a General or High Ranking officer? Would the Ubar or High Council choose them and give them command? Or would the Warriors themselves choose their own Commanders? I know that every Caste has its own Head of Caste, but is the City's Army and the Warrior Caste the same thing? It seems not to be the case. I recall in Assassins of Gor, Maximus Hegesius Quintilius being relived of his post. Who relived him? Was it the High Council or Administrator or was it within the Warrior Caste itself? Search words: relived, invested, General, Commander, army. Also what are the Ranks in a Gorean Army?

I am searching for book references concerning the views and customs of same-sex relationships and more specifically anything that would support or refute whether companionships between two free men or two free women existed in the books. If there are any specific quotes concerning the general nature and views of same-sex relationships within the gorean population as a whole, I would appreciate those as well.

Tal Fogaban, You have one quote that is distorted and partly falsified. I don't know how this happened; I am impressed by the overall integrity of your work.
Here is the falsified quote:
"May I surmise from this," she asked, "as I know little of slavery, and am new to the condition, that there can be tenderness and kindness for a slave?"
"There can be tenderness and kindness for a slave," I said.
. . .
"Can masters and slaves be friends?" she asked. "Yes," I said.
. . .
"Do masters ever love their slaves?" she asked.
"Often," I said.
Blood Brothers of Gor Book 18 Pages 101 and 113
Check it, please.
1. The first ellipsis is used to hide the very important qualification on the tenderness and kindness.
2. I cannot find anything about masters and slaves being "friends" and suspect there nothing in any book that says this.
3. The page numbers are wrong. ..

Where does it say that a girl doesn't allow her back to be to a Free Man or Free Woman?

Greetings, Fogban. What do free men and women of Gor consider dishonorable? Search words: dishonorable, dishonor, disgrace, shame. Kind Regards, Caits Sola.

"When may a slave say 'NO' to or question a command given by a Free Person?" I'm not sure this is an exact quote. As there seems to be some confusion. With a slave speaking the word "No" in general conversation. To answer a question. Compared to telling a Free "NO" when being commanded to do service. Thank you for any help with clarification.

How do the free men of Gor handle their emotions, if there is loss, do they cry, or do they bury it?

I am seeking quotes on the city of Jad, do you think you can help me with that?

This is much in debate, and I am hoping you can lend some weight to the discussion. My understanding in my reading is that slaves will tower when in the -presence- of a Free Woman, unless in a tavern or other space that is a specific male only realm (tavern, his chambers, so forth). Many are clinging to what I believe a hold over of the onlineism that they kneel nadu at all times. I would love your thoughts on the matter. English, not being my first language, sometimes plays into my failing to properly grasp semantics on an issue, and I admit that. Over the course of many books; though, this seems to be the case. Thank you in advance for your time if you elect to take this one on. I love your site, and I use it as an educational tool for teaching those new to Gor very frequently. Thank you also for the time you take in updating it so regularly.

Greetings, I am trying to find out if there were indeed tarn on the Isle of Cos or if, since they were not generally transported by ship, none existed there. Thank you in advance for your time!

I am a female slaver. Are there quotes regarding female slavers entering taverns?

Geography: I'd like to know if it is stated, and where, whether the North and South poles of Gor are oriented the same as those of Earth, or are opposite. It matters in comparing the seasonality of Earth with Gor.

I am searching for some meaningful quotes that refer to slavery, chains or the loss of freedom and finding freedom in slavery. Can you help me please? Thank you for all the work you go to in maintaining this site.

Greetings, good sir.
A couple of questions I have been mulling on. Is there a code or a type of mutual understanding or law between free-men on how one uses anthers slave or to see one's persimmon if he is present? For example, A free man is sitting in a tavern with his own slaves or in public with his slaves, can another free man take hold of his slaves or command them to serve him? Without asking their Master to use his property. Was there etiquette or decorum about such things?
Secondly is there anywhere in the books that mentions slaves or fighting slaves, or any type of slaves fighting in war? For example I have heard people speaking about everyone in Port Kar coming out in the defense of it.
And did Cos use slaves to fight in the Cos vs Ar wars?
Thank your for your time.
Kind Regards

I am looking for the quotes that name cities that were once ruled by a Tatrix. Somewhere I am sure I read that Ko-ro-ba was once ruled by a Tatrix and her mate, though it might have been Ty. Now I can't find either reference, can you help me please? I thank you for all the effort you have put into the amazing resource!!!

is the word switch ever used as a form of punishment for a slave anywhere in the books, to my best knowledge it is never mentioned

I'll be honest, I've never fully read a book. But I would like to know what one slave girl calls another. If they typically use the names given to them, or what. I know Online they use sister, which I know is not correct. Please help.

I have noticed that there are more gay or homosexual characters in Gor. Is there mention in the books of this? Was it approved of, taboo?

The meaning behind kissing the side of a drinking vessel.

Tal from Ar, I could not find the quote in assassin's page here, but knew I saw it some where. So just was curious if you were able to answer my question, thank you. Was marked killers allowed to roam freely to kill in cities, or would city guard keep an eye out along with guard important people? I believe saw a Pani quote that there was a killer there, and guard put on alert. Another in southern city, that officials would be surrounded by guards.

I have been searching for any reference to the use of Pepper used as a cooking spice. I think it is mentioned in relation to the Tahari and the spicy foods that come from that region. I am sure I did not invent this idea out of thin air and if you would please let me know if there is an actual reference to pepper used for cooking I would be eternally grateful. This has been driving me batty!! Thank you, thank you for offering this valuable service to your followers.

Does the Tahari Desert use the Summer solstice calendar like Turia does?

Sir, A friend came and asked of me recently to bring her a quote that I cannot find and sort of turn my nose up at anyway. She is seeking a quote where it says blushing is wrong for a free woman to do in public. One would think with the litany of things being wrong for a free woman to do blushing would be almost spelled out but its not from what I can see. I've been told once its only slaves that blushed. I asked that person is it because there are quotes supporting such and therefore limiting your thought processes or is that you are forgetting that blushing is a human thing to do all together indicating shyness or nervousness and your just daft about the natural tide of emotions you have as a human? Please settle my argument. Thank you.

what is meaning of SLAVERS KISS?

Tal Fogban and much thanks for the Gorean Cave. I find Myself using it as a quick reference in conjunction with My kindle collection almost daily.

Tal Fogoban, I have a request for a quote on smoking a pipe on Gor. Is this somewhere in the books? Thanks! Vynka

I am interested in quotes regarding a Free man impregnating a slave, and what happens to the baby when it is born. Does the Free Man get to choose whether it becomes free or slave? Does it automatically become slave because it was born of a slave? Does it automatically become free, because it was sired by a free?

Quotes regarding blood transfusion.

Is mead ever shown or suggested served outside of Torvaldsland?

Hello Sir, First I would like to say thank you so very much for being most thorough for supplying such a vast website of knowledge and putting forth your time into doing this.
With that being said I have read the books and in the books there is a quote about poison slaves and if they don't bite they die can you please can you give me that entire quote where it say's the slaves bite, they bite the person dies and the slaves die.
Please and thank you so very much, I know its in Assassins of gor. In that same quote it explains what happens to the slave if the slave doesn't deliver the bite in time.
Again your time is so very appreciated. I wish you well.

Tal Fogoban,
I am Chief scribe to a city which is not in the books but we have created in accordance with the books.
It is called Cartius and as you may have guessed it is situated on the Cartius, but then on the southern parts somewhere along the lines of Brundisium lattitude.
What I am trying to accomplish is to build Canon and history for the city along with a few interesting angles for storylines and story arches.
I have often used your information as reference and am very gratefull for your revelations of the book quotes and assemblies.
What I want to ask you is to help me to establish history for a city once started for the mining of the mountain ridge behind it (now abandoned) it uses trade and transport from the Schendi regions to the Vosk by use of a Dam in the Cartius where relay of ships cargos takes place.
What I need is references (not exploreres of Gor) to a possible city on the Cartius river where I can build Canon and history or storylines.
Grattitude from Vynka
